Movies dealing with loneliness

Basically what I'm asking in the title.

Movies where the protagonist deals with loneliness and mental issues.

Winter Light by Ingmar Bergman

Burning (2018)- Very slow burn mystery that’s all about the characters, the main one being very quiet with few friends. It’s in Korean, so if you don’t like subtitles then maybe avoid this one but it is really great.

Came here to say this but saw you beat me to it, can not recommend this one enough. Haunting film and a masterpiece in my eyes.

Dreams of a Life, a heartbreaking 2011 documentary. A filmmaker sets out to discover the life of Joyce Vincent, who died in her bedsit in North London in 2003. Her body wasn't discovered for three years, and newspaper reports offered few details of her life - not even a photograph.

Marwencol, or the movie Welcome to Marwen

Oh my god. Welcome to Marwen was a total surprise and not at all what it looked like in the advertisements. I think that's why it got bad reviews, but it really pulled on my inside bits in a way I wasn't ready for.

That Cold Day in the Park by Robert Altman, a movie about a very lonely upper-class woman who give shelter to a boy she find in a park

Three Woman, also by Altman, more abstract, difficult to describe, basically about the life of a couple of lost girls in the middle of nowhere. these twos movies are utterly beautiful (and somewhat perturbing), i'll hope you'll like them as much as i do.

Sous le sable by François Ozon, the story of a woman who lose her husband and suffer from ptsd. simple but compelling

Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, by Tony Richardson. it's about a young boy who ends up in a reform school, can't really say more but it's great

Ad Astra, though it’s more about the character dealing with traits that cause him to end up being alone and blocking people out. Good watch and a very pretty movie to look at to boot.

Honey Boy

Lars and The Real Girl
